  2. Results in this paper use the “Overall average – minimum of sources” estimates
  3. Values shown are weighted averages (based on the benefit cohort population size in each country)
  4. aThe overall maximum and minimum averages were estimated from all sources for each country individually, and then averaged by region (which is why the values are smaller than the regional database averages)
  5. Costs are expressed in US$ 2014 prices
  6. For countries not listed in the database, the lowest value within the same region was used as a proxy
